    Breathtaking 1921 High Relief Peace Dollar, A Frosty Superb Gem

    1921 $1 MS67 PCGS. To the best of our knowledge, no major numismatic auction house has handled a Superb Gem 1921 Peace Dollar since at least 1993. This should come as no surprise to students of the series, as both major grading services have certified just eight coins in MS67. There are none finer (3/02).
    Although saved in significant numbers as a first-year issue, the 1921 is a conditionally challenging coin that is usually found with numerous distracting bagmarks. Strike is also a problem for this issue, as the high relief of the design often resulted in soft definition in the centers. This is a truly amazing specimen. The surfaces are uncommonly clean with a smooth, virtually untouched cheek on Liberty's portrait. The striking quality is above average for the issue with sharpness of detail in most areas and emerging definition over the central highpoints. Finally, the luster is exceptionally radiant with a swirling, frosty texture. A little light color is seen here and there, particularly around the reverse eagle, and accuracy compels us to mention a tiny spot on the obverse at Liberty's eye. This coin was obviously well cared for since the day of issue, and we have no doubt that the consignor also handpicked it for extraordinary technical quality and awe-inspiring eye appeal.
    From the David Hall Collection. (NGC ID# 2U4E, PCGS# 7356)
